A Revised Flag

This piece depicts a loose rendition of the LGBT flag and the meaning behind it's various colors. Two new colors are depicted at the top; brown and black. Various areas and several communities have adapted a flag including these colors, but it is not yet as common as the well-known rainbow flag. The images in order from top to bottom are: Marsha P. Johnson, James Baldwin, the cast of Love Simon, Keith Haring, Marsha P. Johnson, a photo of a man with AIDS taken by Nan Goldin, the cover of Paris is Burning, and the police scene outside of the Pulse nightclub shooting.
